Additional Comments: With global interest rates close to zero, high debt levels, and a rise in geopolitical risks, economists, central banks, regulators, and policymakers are debating about what type of monetary, fiscal, and structural policies will be needed to support economic growth and respond to the next economic downturns. This panel will discuss some recent proposals in terms of new macro policy frameworks, including close coordination between monetary and fiscal policies in the United States and European Union. This event is organized by the Duke University Center for International & Global Studies with support from the the Global Financial Markets Center at Duke Law and the Department of Economics.
